Surviving Riyadh

Arrival At King Khalid International Airport

Arrival At King Khaled International Airport


I was awakened by the pilot’s announcement that we were ready to descend at King Khaled International Airport, followed by his prayer. Riyadh, Saudi Arabia was our final destination. We had boarded the Saudia Airlines in New York, JFK International Airport, after a day of orientation at Knoxville, Tennessee by HCA.

When the plane landed, we exited one by one. It was midnight. The ladies put on their abayas and scarves. We were instructed to put on our name tags. It was crowded inside and the lines were long. Fortunately, there were two lines just for the recruits. Representatives from the hospital were there to welcome us and gave us instructions. Our passports were processed. Women were segregated from the men.
